Chris started racing in 2006 in the
Street Class at Darlington Dragway because he loves cars and there is no
better smell than nitrous and no better thrill than to driver over 100
mph. Career highlights are just doing it for the fun.
The thrill of racing for Chris is that

shotgun with Chris. He's most proud of his car the better it does.

cousins, Nathan Pridgen and Ashton Pridgen.
Of racing, Chris says, "Do it, but you
had better have a big set of wrenches!".
